Default Scraps-organized! D4P - I Spy quilt

I took an evening and separated all my scraps. I don't have a huge collection yet, so I was able to sort them by color and put them in separate gallon ziplock bags. Next to figure out how to cut them down per B. Hunter's scrap system, then maybe make a scrappy quilt to cuddle up on the couch or something. Anyway, just trying to get a handle on the scrap pile before it gets too out of hand.

Also, started on my first D4P I-Spy quilt. I think it's going to be so cute! Will post a pic when it's done. Inspired by the MSQC tutorial on the D4P quilt. "It's just adorable!" lol

Very wise! I have only made 3 quilts so far and I am working on a scrappy quilt or two or three at the same time at the moment before it gets out of control (from what I read, it happens and I would just be overwhelmed by it with less desire to quilt

It's like Christmas going thru all your scraps and finding ones you had forgotten about!

I love going through scraps and using them. I am working on a d4p and hope to get it done shortly. I like the looks of them and may do a scrappy one next! Have fun with your scraps.

Believe me it does happen. I have been reorganizing and am trying to decide what to do with eight 33 gal trash bags full of scraps. I don't know if I can get rid of them or not!

Agreed - I now have myself convinced that I must crap/organize as soon as I am done with a quilt so that everything left over is chopped up according to the Bonnie Hunter system.
